Wheels 5X115 and 5X114.3
I know the issue with putting a 5X114.3 on our hubs. It works for some folks just fine. To me, it'* just if you DO warp the wheel or snap the studs, you are in some deep doo-doo, or a ditch on the side of the road.
Radomir'* Bullitts look sick, and I'm trying to figure out a way to put some on my '98 SSEi with a better margin of safety.
The difference is 27/1000s of an inch. I'm not sure if the 114/115' measurement is located from the axle or from lug to lug..
And I'm not an engineer, but I did work a few years as a machinist....
Couldn't you mill or drill with a slightly larger bit (than the current holes in the wheel) to move the centerline of the hole to 115mm? It might take a slightly wider lug nut to hold it true.
Has anybody tried anything like this?
